As it always is with a new Disney film, our little ones are going to be obsessed – luckily for them, there are some fabulous The Little Mermaid 2023 toys available to keep the magic going after they’ve seen the film.

It stars Halle Bailey as Ariel and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula – from what we can see, it looks amazing, plus the songs will be in our heads for days.
